Citizenship test and interview

​​​​​​​​​​Most applicants for citizenship by conferral aged between 18 and 59 years will need to have an interview and sit the citizenship test.

The test assesses your English language skills and what you ​​know about Australia and Australian citizenship.​ See Prepare for the test.​

Some applicants aged 16 or 17 years, or who are aged 60 and over, may be required to have an interview but will not need to sit the citizenship test. If this applies to you, we will contact you.

Australian Citizenship: Our Common Bond​ is all you need to prepare for the test. The Department does not endorse or recommend any other package that claims will help you to pass the citizenship test.
